Unforgettable Business Learning

Understand, Think and Act in the language of Business

Our management and executive development programs will align your people around the essential concepts, language and analytical tools of business. Our comprehensive programs will give them the business insight and understanding they need to "think on their feet" in today's dynamic corporate environment. The program provides participants with a clearer and holistic understanding of the business, a sound understanding of financial objectives and metrics, and lays the groundwork for smart, business-savvy decision making that will favourably impact your company's productivity and profitability.

Building Competence and Confidence in Business Essentials.

Our compelling programs have been delivered to thousands of executives and managers in Global 500 companies throughout every region of the world. They improve performance by:

  • Demystifying the basic principles of sound business practices.
  • Providing a practical understanding of the fundamental building blocks of business: economics, strategy, finance, operations, accounting and marketing.
  • Teaching the language and skills needed to effectively and fully participate in today's decision making process.
  • Challenging "conventional wisdom" and developing the ability to think, adapt-and thrive-in a continuously changing corporate and economic climate.

Building a solid Foundation® for leadership.

Our programs are a jump-start for leadership development. They improve business understanding, enhance business communication, increase engagement and enhance performance by getting all your people on the same page. Participants come away with a clear understanding of how the business works and how it sustains profitability. They'll gain valuable insights into how all the parts fit together- and they'll see with clarity how their individual contributions affect and drive the bottom line.

Who will benefit?

Our programs are designed for anyone whose work impacts-or should impact-your company's bottom line, and who would benefit from a more solid base of business knowledge. High potential employees are ideal candidates, as well as successful professionals who have excelled in their specialized discipline-engineering, sales, marketing, HR, manufacturing - and are assuming expanded management responsibilities. The training equips your decision makers with critical business skills that could otherwise take years to develop. It can also be an excellent refresher, and often a valuable eye-opener, for experienced managers, even if they already have advanced business degrees.

There are lots of Executive and Management courses out there. How is this one different?

For starters, the materials are timely and instantly relevant; this isn't education in a dry vacuum. Our facilitators are constantly combing current news and global events to bring cases and media coverage into the program - thought-provoking topics that help the group explore what's really going on in their industry and in the business world today.

The learning environment is non-intimidating, and at the same time, intensely interactive. There are no soporific monologues, no formulaic or canned presentations.

Finally, our programs are all about action and application. Participants are given all the tools and help they need not only to apply the learning from the training, but to make it an integral part of their day-to-day management and decision making.
